Spend Smart

The Hiatus is Over

What seemed like a complete drop off of the map was really just a time to rejuvenate, refocus and rededicate myself to look smart, eat smart and spend smart. It’s difficult to promote and motivate others when you don’t practice what you preach. During this hiatus new discoveries have been made to help others look smarteat smart and spend smart with an increased focus on sharing personal experiences regardless of my relationship with that particular company.

New partnerships have been developed, but most importantly the focus has been reaffirmed to help you save time and be the best person you can be. The pace will likely be less frantic, meaning daily posts are likely a thing of the past, but that should result in more in-depth and thought out topics rather than getting content out the door simply for the sake of writing. While the exercise of writing something everyday for two straight months was a great, and successful, challenge it really wasn’t the purpose of this site. I look forward to sharing several new companies, discoveries, experiences and sites with you and hopefully leverage to look smarteat smart and spend smart.

Here’s the optimizing your life one day at a time.

New Product to ‘Cut The Cord’ with Mohu Channels

Back in February, I made the choice to cut my TV service and save the money I was for other things. Mohu was discussed about a month ago as a potential solution to get local HD channels. If you’re tired of paying for cable or satellite TV Mohu can be a great option to still get great programming without paying monthly subscription costs. About a week ago, USA Today wrote an article recently detailing their latest product release of the new Mohu Channels. We’ll analyze what this new product does and even provide a special coupon code to get $50 off your purchase.


Prep for Sunglasses Season

While the first day of spring has come according to the calendar, it seems much of the country still seems to be experiencing winter like weather. As a way to help brighten up your day and dethaw your mood we’re going to look specifically at a product to help you look smart once the weather cooperates. While we want you to look smart and be prepared we also want to make sure you spend smart because frivolous spending on something we’d classify as ‘nice to have, but not a need’ is plain irresponsible. So in preparation for the summer season, and bright skies, we’re going to take a look at the different options you have for sunglasses.


Everyday Essentials at Wholesale Prices with Boxed

There’s a site that aligns with exactly what this site promotes helping you look smarteat smart and spend smart with an emphasis on helping you save time. It’s hard to overlook Costco and their wholesale pricing, but as one site reminds you there’s a million reasons to shop elsewhere. In order to switch from your local warehouse club, you have to be getting the same great prices, but accomplish this in less time, using less resources and cause yourself less stress. The average trip to the local warehouse club takes over 180 minutes on top of the fact you have to have a membership in order to save money. I’m very pleased to introduce the site Boxed and share with you why you can eliminate your Costco membership by using them.

Protect Your Investment With Otterbox

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned, protecting your investments is one of the best things you can do. Often times this is in the form of insurance or some sort of warranty. While these are important, typically having tools or other products that protect your purchase are best so that you don’t even have to call your insurance or warranty provider. In the case of my cell phone, I knew I was making a serious investment into my hardware for the opportunity to save longterm and only pay $10 per month for my cell phone plan. While I was fortunate and never had any issues with my Blackberry, which only had a simple silicon case on it, I had a feeling if I didn’t get a more heavy duty case I was going to regret it. It doesn’t matter if it’s your cell phone or tablet device, if you want to protect your product there’s no better case than an Otterbox.
